Lab M Extends Ready-to-Reconstitute Media Range with Launch of µPrep Half Fraser Broth ISO (+FAC)
Lab M has launched µPrep™ Half Fraser Broth ISO (+FAC), the latest addition to the company’s µPrep range of convenient, ready-to-reconstitute microbiological culture media.
Designed for use in the isolation of Listeria spp. from foodstuffs, this complete primary enrichment broth is supplied sterile in a highly robust bag, which simply requires the addition of water. There is no mess and no autoclaving is required, ensuring the speedy preparation of 20 litres of complete Half Fraser Broth ISO (+FAC). The medium is based on the formulation of ISO 11290 and meets the performance requirements of ISO/TS 11133.
Reconstitution simply requires attaching a standard laboratory deionised or reverse osmosis water supply, via the Lab M filter accessory, to the bag. The medium reconstitutes rapidly, requires no additional sterilisation or supplementation and is ready to dispense and use in minutes.
Using Lab M’s proven dehydrated culture media formulations, the µPREP™ range is designed primarily for high throughput laboratories where speed, convenience, reliability and cost-effectiveness are high priorities, and where storage space is often at a premium.
All Lab M media are manufactured in powdered form, ensuring rapid cold dissolution and avoiding any of the reconstitution issues that can arise with granulated media, making them ideally suited for use in the µPREP™ format. Robust double-skinned bag construction and a dual port system ensure that leakage is not an issue.
